Board Report

February QST editorial by Howard Michael WB2ITX, the ARRL CEO.
It offers insight into some of the things the ARRL is trying in order to make Ham radio more relevant.
I believe it has some very interesting ideas, some of which we may want to consider in our outreach efforts to attract members.

Repeater Tech/Site

Mark KF6WTN, John WB6IQS and ECRA technical people went to Palomar Mountain to install their 447.800 MHz repeater antenna and install a new coaxial cable on the tower.   The weather was excellent and except for a few shady spots all the snow was gone.

John cleaned the 20' storage container and will dispose of numerous obsolete and useless junk that has collected over the years.   Mark ordered a replacement temperature controlled ventilation fan for the main building so that during the summer there is enough cooling air.   The equipment generates enough heat that without cooling air the equipment may be damaged.

ECRA had two tower climbers aloft for several hours as they installed antenna hardware and added a new 1/2" heliax coaxial cable.   Initial testing of the 447.800 MHz ECRA repeater shows good signal strength and good overall performance.
